Tabbles does not start anymore or the database is corrupted
Sometimes your database can become corrupted due to power failures (you can see a crash window when loading Tabbles).
Solution. To use Tabbles again, you will have to restore a database backup. Tabbles has an automatic backup system, so you should have a backup copy of the database, which we must now try to restore.
With Explorer, enter the folder C:usersYourNameDocumentsTabblesDatabases (if you have Windows Vista/7) or C:Documents and SettingsYourNameDocumentsTabblesDatabases (if you have Windows XP). In this folder, you should see the file:
– db.zip: this is the database that got corrupted. Rename it to bd_not_working.zip
Now go to C:usersYourNameDocumentsTabblesBackup (if you have Windows Vista/7) or C:Documents and SettingsYourNameDocumentsTabblesBackup (if you have Windows XP), you should see
– db_backup.zip: this is the database that is hopefully good. Copy it
– Paste db_backup.zip to …Databases and rename it to db.zip.
You should be good to go now! Still got problems? Write us 🙂
